Chairman of Bassetlaw Clinical Commissioning Group, Dr Eric Kelly, said it was “truly fantastic” to reach such a significant figure.

“We want to thank every single person who has come forward – whether it be for their first jab, or all three – and the amazing team of staff who have worked so hard to administer them” he said.

More than 250,000 people in Bassetlaw have now received a Covid vaccination.

“This has been, and continues to be, a colossal effort to stem the spread of coronavirus and keep our local community safe. Health professionals across Bassetlaw continue to work together tirelessly to ensure the delivery of a truly comprehensive vaccine programme.”

Dr Kelly urged anyone who is still in two minds about having the vaccine not to worry about coming forward.
